The owners from Eaglehawk Angus came to Let’s Build a Website originally for SEO training. During the SEO training realised that they really needed a re-design of their website as it was very old and outdated. Consequently, not mobile-friendly!
This is the new Eaglehawk Angus website
What we did in the training
Firstly we did 3 hours of SEO training, so they could manage their own SEO. And actually, know what’s being done within their own site.
This included showing them how to;
- Research keywords.
- Create content and format it properly.
- Blogging and how to Blog successively.
- Check the status of their site with Google Console.
- That is;
- Did they have a sitemap?
- Was their site mobile friendly?
- Was it performing ok?
- Were there any site errors?
- They also learnt how to check for keywords.
- Next, we tested the speed.
- Then learnt how to use the Yoast plugin for WordPress.
- Lastly, how and why to add backlinks.
What we did next..
There is no point in doing SEO without having a user-friendly website. So we decided to build a new site. We only had 2 hours left in the training to get this started.
So this is what we did
- Set up a new site on the same hosting, in a separate folder.
- So no-one could see it and the live site was still working.
- Installed the Divi theme (Ad) which we gave to Eagle Angus for free for doing our training.
- Then, we set up the pages and structure for the site.
- Basically, it was an empty shell which Annie from Eagle Angus was going to populate.
- Jodi the trainer showed Annie how to use the Divi builder.
- Including how to create pages and layouts.
- Annie went away from the training and continued to build the site as it is today!
- It looks amazing!!
To sum up
Annie and her mum from Eagle Angus completed a total of only 5 hours of training with Let’s Build a Website. They left the training with not only 3 hours of intensive SEO training but also with new skills on how to build a website. Annie built a fantastic new website over the following 2 weeks, that was not only user-friendly but SEO friendly also.
